Outdoor adventure education supports children's emotional, physical and intellectual growth, instilling in them a “yes I can do” attitude that they can apply to all aspects of their lives. Outdoor exercise stimulates all five senses in a way that indoor activities can't. In addition, being in nature affects the brain in a positive way, making you feel better about yourself. Education, training and outdoor recreation promote active learning through direct personal experience and offer excitement, fun and adventure in a safe setting.
Outdoor exercise greatly contributes to health and fitness, and continued participation in outdoor activities encourages the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle until middle age and beyond. Education, training and outdoor recreation involve both youth and adults in a wide range of experiences, including adventure activities on land and water and activities with an environmental focus. Reflecting this heritage, Great Britain has led the use of learning and outdoor adventure for young people's development, for example, through the Scout and Guide movements, Outward Bound and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. Britain has a long tradition in the field of education, training and outdoor recreation, reflecting the strong place of exploration and adventure in the British heritage.
Active learning and outdoor adventure introduce young people to the environment in a way that develops understanding, appreciation, amazement, amazement. The development of interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships is also another positive aspect that can be drawn from outdoor adventure.
